    Post your NWA knives


    ADVERTISEMENT
    This will be a place for all who have got one of my knives to post a pic of it and post some thoughts on your knife or knives. Good or bad I would like to hear both sides. Or if you have any suggestions.

    Thanks Nick

    I believe this thread is going to be VERY bad for my wallet.... I'll be sure to post pics of mine here, when I get it.

    You want 'em, you've got 'em!








    Once I get the field knife and Stinger back from MBHanzo I'll have a few more for you.

    By the way, good looking pics there Brian. The guy that owns that knife must be happy to see such great looking shots.

    wow.. awesome pics (Brians)folks... Nick makes some amazing knives... i really want one of those smaller EDC style knives, like the one that we passed around...

    here's my forum knife.. i had Nick make mine with a 4 in. blade, instead of the 5 in... i love this thing... it's probably one of the most comfortable knives i have...
    i have some more pics somewhere.. i'm going to have to search my photobucket account...

    Nice Mike! That was the knife that sealed the deal for me and got me on Nick's list; I could not get over how great it felt in my hand. I definitely have to pick up a 4" Sierra Scout like this, or a 4" TK model down the line.

    Nick... I have one of your earlier models that I had you make me after seeing a couple of your knives posted here. Noticed the early Identification mark and thumb grooves.

    I REALLY like this knife overall. The only thing I can nit-pick about (and that's really stretching) is to add a little bit of contouring to the handle shape. That would make this knife darn near perfect... if that's possible.

    On w/some pics...











    One of these days I'm going to have you make me a couple more blades. Perhaps even one for my son in the near future as he thinks the one I currently have is his anyway.

    Thanks for posting Redsnake The scales are a tad thicker now. Those measured .300" thick each plus the .187 for the steel making it roughly .787" thick. They now are about .080" overall thicker at the thickest point making the contours a little more pronounced.


    Tony, that handle material is Corian. I still have a whole bunch of that material too.


    Thanks
    Nick

    Tony... just like Nick said, these are a 'green' corian material. They look great I think. Almost have a digi-camo appearance in hand.

    I have about 40 or so custom knives of all shapes and sizes... and my 11 yr old absolutely loves this one over any of my Busses, Scagels, etc... so much so that he was saving up his money back w/he was 8 so that he could get Nick to make one just like it for him. His $$ went elsewhere (as it so often does when ur a kid...) but he still loves this knife... as do I.

    Thanks for the info Nick.
